Collaborative Grants

The SDWF Collaboration Committee works to increase our impact by partnering with other philanthropic funders. Separate from the annual grants process, investment opportunities are identified by a committee of contributing SDWF members, who pay $500 in additional dues towards the collaborative grants pool.

Indigenous Food Sovereignty

In 2024 the SDWF Collaboration Committee partnered with the Avila Fund and San Diego Foundation to fund food sovereignty in local tribal communities. Through this collaboration, $60K in funding was awarded to four local organizations.

Afghan Refugees

In 2022 the SDWF Collaboration Committee joined forces with Rotary District 5340 to support community-based organizations providing support services to Afghan Refugees in San Diego County. $65,000 in funding was distributed to four organizations providing critical support to Afghan Refugees.
